Featured Reviews

"Debunking the Myth of Job Fit in Higher Education and Student Affairs unapologetically critiques the myth of the importance of 'Job Fit' in higher education and student affairs, offering a clear, honest, and challenging picture of the biases faced by minoritized professionals during the job search process and once they are employed at Predominantly White Institutions. The authors of this book comprehensively address the various excuses that colleges and universities claim have kept them from achieving the inclusivity and equity advocated in their mission statements. Simultaneously, the authors offer specific, cutting edge – yet doable – recommendations for creating environments that enable minoritized individuals to be their authentic selves, thrive, and succeed in welcoming higher education settings."

The New Science of Learning 2

How to Learn in Harmony With Your Brain

"This new edition is a fascinating book for students, and a valuable resource for professors, advisors, tutors in academic support centers, and even coaches. Terry Doyle and Todd Zakrajsek have updated their book to include the latest research on how our brains learn and factors that can help increase one's learning power by using researched-based strategies. In every-day terms, they have broken down the ‘scientific’ workings of the brain and give practical advice that students can use to help them increase their learning and recall, especially when they are challenged with difficult tasks.

Doyle and Zakrajsek give their readers a solid foundation for becoming lifelong learners in a way that is harmonious with the scientific learning. They do not promise a magical transformation with ease, but they do give readers ways to transform their learning capacity by using research-based strategies so that the time and effort spent is worthwhile and rewarding. This book is perfect for students to learn about methods and activities to use when learning so that their time and efforts are maximize."

Kathleen F. Gabriel, Associate Professor, School of Education

“Deep learning is hard. This book shows how we can help all of our students transform the challenge and struggle of learning into a desirable difficulty. By blending the latest research with concrete instructional applications, Persellin and Daniels offer practical strategies that faculty in any discipline can use to enhance student learning and motivation. This slim volume is worth its weight in pedagogical gold for both faculty and educational developers.”

Teaching as the Art of Staging

A Scenario-Based College Pedagogy in Action

"Do you want to be a truly creative and inspiring instructor? Then you must read Weston’s Teaching as the Art of Staging. Taking 'student-centered' and 'experiential learning' to whole new levels, his innovative pedagogy relies on staging learning situations and letting your students run with them. Weston deftly demonstrates how you can become an impresario with scenarios, whatever your discipline, by drawing on his broad teaching experience in the sciences, social sciences, and humanities."
